A Film Meme, Now For The Second Time

I was tagged by Ceri form Not in the Pink for this one and since I love movies as much as books I said what the heck, lets do it.  Now I had already done a version of this meme on August 3rd of last year, so I will try to expand on my answers and not repeat myself.  Now a few of the questions are different but most are the same.

Name a film that you have seen more than 10 times.

The Thin Man would be one I've seen over and over and over and over and over again.

Name a film that you’ve seen multiple times in the cinema.

I'm not a big lets go to the theater to see it over and over kind of guy.  Now because of a past relationship I do remember seeing The Cell with Jennifer Lopez and Mission Impossile 2 in the theater twice each.

Name an actor that would make you more inclined to see a film.

Parker Posey

Name an actor that would make you less likely to see a film.

Nicholas Cage

Name a film that you can and do quote from.

Monster Squad. "Kick him in the nards, kick him in the nards.......the Wolfman  does have nards!"

Name a film musical that you know all of the lyrics to all of the songs.

The Phantom of the Opera, only because I loved the stage musical first.

Name a film that you would recommend everyone see.

To name a few I didn't name last time:  Gosford Park, The Thin Man series, Gremlins, The Last Starfighter, The Orphanage, Pan's Labyrinth, and I will end it there otherwise the list will never end.

Ever walked out of a film?

Another movie I walked out of was 12 Monekeys.

Name a film that made you cry in the cinema.

Ok I have to give a different answer from last time and since I mentioned two of them then, the first movie that comes to mind this time is Evita.  All I ask is that you keep the snickering to a minimum.


The more butter the better.

How often do you go to the cinema (as opposed to renting them or watching them at home)?

Not as much as I used to.  It's about a few times a month now.  It used to be once or twice a week.

What’s the last film you saw in the cinema?

I'm not sure but the last few movies I've seen in the theater are: Ninja Assassins, The Road, Precious, and I know I have seen movies since then but my mind is drawing a blank right now.

What’s your favourite/preferred genre of film?

My second favorite would be mystery.  I can never get enough of a good murder.

What’s the first film you remember seeing in the cinema?

I also remember seeing pretty early in life: The Creep Show, Dawn of the Dead, and The Sword in the Stone.

What film do you wish you had never seen?

Twilight.  I finally broke down and saw the first movie and I've been kicking myself ever since.

What is the scariest film you’ve seen?

After Halloween it would have to be The Blair Witch Project, that ending scared the hell out of me.

If you could be any character portrayed in a movie, who would it be?

Zorro or Tarzan.  It would be so cool to be either character, The Lone Ranger comes to mind as well.

Total number of films you own on DVD and video.

137 plus another 25 seasons of different TV shows

Last film you bought.

I bought Snow White, Poltergeist, Mannequin and Mannequin 2: On The Move all at the same time.

Last film you watched.

I rented The Hurt Locker and I loved it as much as I did in the theater.  The last movie I watched off of TV was Them! which I had on my DVR from TCM.

Five films that mean a lot to you.

I tackled this thinking if I could only watch 5 movies for the rest of my life, what would they be?  So I chose; The Women, Auntie Mame, The Thin Man, Halloween, and Christmas in Connecticut.

I love Guillermo del Toro's films! Excellent choices.

The only movie I ever walked out on was The Rules of Attraction. Terrible!

I slept through Wild Wild West with Will Smith...what a drag!!! Loved reading your answers on this meme!! My son is the movie hound in the house and he can do complete scenes from too many movies to count!

Great answers! While I didn't snicker when you said Evita made you cry, I couldn't help it when you admitted to going to see Twilight. Really Ryan? Twilight? *snicker* :D

I played along!

"Evita"!!! There are no words to express how I feel about this movie. Although everyone simply remembers the Casa Rosada scene, my favorite ones are Another Suitcase and High Flying Adored. :)

Ceri said...

Ah, crap. I had no idea you'd already done this, hun. :P

I am loving that you bought Snow White with Poltergeist and the Mannequin films - It seemed like such a funny thing to go with them. :D

Until I saw Paranormal Activity, The Blair Witch Project was my ultimate 'scariest film I've ever seen.' I couldn't watch it without the DVD commentary on. *shudders*

Twilight. Ahahahahahahaha!!! I love you!

I have not seen Twilight either. I love movies, but we always seem to run out of time on these. We purchase more for our son than for ourselves. This is a great post! I enjoy hearing about the movies. I wish we went to the theaters more, but they get a little expensive going. :)

Great answers (and the idea to answer it a second time!). As a fellow film geek, I'm impressed. You also reminded me that I still need to see The Hurt Locker. Yay!
